The DECA Virtual Business Challenge is an official DECA competitive event where participants use highly visual simulation software to manage a business. The DECA Virtual Business Challenge (VBC) encourages DECA members to test their skills at managing a business individually or as a team. The VBC culminates in live competitions at the International Career Development Conference. This year's VBC will have the four tracks, VBR Restaurant, VBC Retailing, VBC Sports, and the H&R Block Dollars & Sense National Challenge.
